Whereas the plagues of the days gone by involved different diseases, mostly bacterial and viral ones, the current plague that is decimating the UK has nothing to do with those nasty microscopic forms of life and everything to do with our lifestyles. Of course, we are talking about the lifestyles that have made the UK the leading European country when it comes to obesity. The growing population of people in the UK are obese and the good news is that people are finally starting to realize how dangerous this is, not only when it comes to the psychological implications, but also the physiological ones. Because of this, many people are looking for great diets and HCG diet is quite simply one of the most efficient.
The most important thing to remember about an HCG diet is that it is not something that you should do for months on end. It is a very limiting and exclusive diet which makes it only suitable for a week, two weeks at the most. Anything more than this and you might see the detrimental effects of this diet, which will be brought about, let’s face it, by an extremely harsh diet that can make your body suffer after some time.
Namely, this diet involves a very low calorie diet which is limited to 500 calories per day. When you consider that we take in much, much more when not adhering to this diet, it might even seem like too risky. And it would be if not for a very important part of it- the HCG part of it. HCG is a human hormone that is released by women during pregnancy and which allows them to burn their natural accumulations of fats in order to keep the foetus satiated. These days, the technology has advanced so much that you can get products which will stimulate the natural production of this hormone so that it helps you burn all the calories that you will need to keep yourself going.
Because of this, you will not actually experience the dangers of the restricted diet and all of this will ultimately lead to a significant weight loss. In fact, the HCG diet is amount the most efficient in the world and it is possible to lose copious amounts of weight with it. Keep in mind, however, that you should never exert yourself too much while on an HCG diet. Due to the limited amounts of calories you put in your body, you might find that your energy levels are not as high as they usually are. Because of this, nothing more than light walks is recommended for people on this diet.
It is a very short-term and a very drastic diet, but if done properly, it can be a start or an end of an amazing weight loss program that will have you losing weight like never before, both when it comes to the quickness and when it comes to the amount of weight you will lose.
